8-foot great white shark pings off Cape Canaveral coast

8-foot great white shark pings off Cape Canaveral coast”

Her journey, tracked on OCEARCH.ORG, has taken her down the Eastern seaboard and around the Florida Keys up to the Gulf of Mexico.

OCEARCH studies great whites, tiger sharks and other keystone marine species. Ocearch, a shark research and advocacy group, said Savannah pinged near the Space Coast about 6 p.m.

A ping is determined when the tagged shark's dorsal fin breaks the surface of the water and transmits a signal to a satellite.

"Miss Costa" was tagged on September 26, 2016 in Nantucket, Massachusetts by OCEARCH.ORG to gather scientific data and track her journey. She then meandered around in the waters off the east coast.

A South Carolina-based 460 lb. shark made her way to the Sunshine State on Monday.

The ping near Cape Canaveral is the farthest south Savannah has pinged since she was tagged during an expedition on March 5, 2017.

On Dec. 10, she pinged off the coast of Key Largo. On Christmas, she was near Key West, then did not ping again until 6:21 a.m. on January 1 off the Sarasota County coast in the Gulf of Mexico.

A great white shark is swimming along Florida's coast, just the latest snowbird to head south for the winter.
